Re: [Native Flute Woodworking] Easy Way to Make Flat Backwalls...Plus another tip..
- I've read that the spike works too, but the notes all sound fuzzy. We don't want that. I haven't tried either yet.

Those spikes and wedges are bore perturbations that are meant to taper
the head area under the TSH. A spike (sticking out of the middle of
the plug) would probably not be a good thing for any kind of flute
other than a transverse flute. In order to get the full benefit out of
adjusting the backset volume, the flute bore should either taper toward
the foot, towart the plug, or have a slight bulge. The location of
that bulge or the start of the taper is about 1/5 to 1/4 the way down
the bore from the TSH. A Fajardo wedge does the trick for the head
taper. I've tried it, and it works ok.
